Data/API Users: New Data Download/Sync Option - Github

Hi,

We now have a GitHub repository which hosts a copy of our data (a JSON export from MongoDB):

This means you can download all data (gzipped) in one go by downloading from:
https://github.com/openchargemap/ocm-data/blob/master/poi.json.gz

Reference data (connector types etc) can be downloaded from:
https://github.com/openchargemap/ocm-data/blob/master/reference.json

Or alternatively you can stay in sync using git pull form the command line.

Note that we can’t upload the uncompressed data set as it’s too large for github.

Data will be refreshed twice daily, most users only need to sync a few times per week.

Data licensing still applies at the POI level - some data is licensed CC-BY-SA 4.0 if crowdsourced by OCM, other data depends on the data provider - see each data provider for details (all data is open data, exact licensing varies).
